26987071 photoreceptor degeneration caused by missense mutations via endoplasmic reticulum unfolded protein response
26427415 Data suggest that mutant tubby like protein 1 (TULP1) proteins are misfolded and accumulate within the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) leading to induction of the unfolded protein response (UPR) stress response complex.
25342276 The TULP1 allele p.Gln301* represents a founder mutation on the Arabian Peninsula and is associated with a recognisable congenital recessive rod-cone dystrophy phenotype in the homozygous state.
25074776 Retinal degeneration with TULP1 mutations leads to a small central island of residual foveal cones at early ages which are less sensitive than expected from the residual structure.
24664737 Tubby and Tulp1 mediated phagocytosis through MerTK-dependent signaling with non-muscle myosin II redistribution leading to colocalization of phagocytosed vesicles with rearranged NMMIIA.
24547928 This study highlights the value of the broad sequencing strategy of exome sequencing for disease gene identification in Leber congenital amaurosis, over other existing methods.
23499059 Maternal uniparental isodisomy of chromosome 6 unmasked a mutation in the TULP1 gene as a novel cause of cone dysfunction.
22841784 The single nucleotide polymorphisms rs4374383 and rs9380516 were linked to the functionally related genes MERTK and TULP1, which encode factors involved in phagocytosis of apoptotic cells by macrophages.
22665969 One recurrent (c.1138A>G; p.Thr380Ala) and one novel (c.1445G>A; p.Arg482Gln) mutations in TULP1 have been identified in Pakistani families with early-onset retinitis pigmentosa.
22605927 Homozygous autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa-causing mutations have been found in three Indian families. These included a missense mutation in TULP1.
21987678 Pathogenic mutations in TULP1 are responsible for the autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa phenotype in these consanguineous Pakistani families, with a single ancestral mutation in TULP1 causing the disease phenotype in 4 of 5 families.
20978472 Tubby and Tulp1 are bridging molecules with their N-terminal region as MERTK-binding domain and C-terminal region as phagocytosis prey-binding domain.

19837063 Tubby and Tulp1 function as phagocytosis sigmals (eat-me) for retinal pigment epithelium cells and other phagocytes.
18432314 A novel splice-site mutation of TULP1, c.1495+2_1495+3insT, underlying autosomal recessive early-onset RP in a consanguineous Israeli Muslim Arab family.
17962469 Mutation in the TULP1 gene is a rare cause of LCA/EORD (Leber congenital amaurosis or early-onset retinal degeneration.
17620573 The affected members of the Surinamese family have a severe early-onset form of autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa, which is caused by compound heterozygous mutations in the TULP1 gene.
